We value learning and occasionally offer courses.
This spring .
This course begins with a phenomenological and theological exploration of the theme of hospitality. The results of this analysis are then be brought to bear on the concrete and local reality of gentrification. The course concludes by seeking to develop a set of (spiritual) practices of hospitality.
A portion of the course will take the form of a public lecture series, co-sponsored by the Parkdale Neighbourhood Land Trust. Not only will this allow the class to extend a kind of hospitality to the local community, but it will also allow us to learn from a number of people with specialized knowledge of urban life and gentrification.
Previous years’ courses are listed here:
